My iris go nuts ever year but can you believe it, I've never even thought of cutting them to bring them inside! Duh. :) Thanks for opening my eyes!

We have several large iris farms around where I live - people take tours. It's amazing to look out across the fields and see all the color. A lot of people also take them to the cemetery for Memorial Day, since that's when they are in bloom.
